You May Be A Redneck If …

Your Child May Be A Terrorist If ...

France Alerts Parents To Junior Jihadi Warning Signs, Confuses Rest of World


And they mocked Boooosh when he said how the drug cartels were related to the terrorists. Which they are, of course. Now France has an easy-to-misunderstand warning poster ...

image

Let’s see ... this is Fwance after all; earthy, forthright, tactless, practical, and with a language no one can understand. So we have to guess at the meanings and hope some of the words seem familiar.  The document is real enough though.

Top to bottom, left to right

Your french child may be a terrorist if ...
•  They no longer let the girlfriend hold their penis in public.
•  They don’t want to be seen in public with their baby mamas and their love sprats.
•  They stop eating French bread. Alors! Call the gendarmes!!
•  They forget how to dunk. Really? Could french guys dunk before this? Who knew?
•  They leave their iPads at home and reject recorded music as empty noise devoid of meaning and nuance, preferring only live jazz performed by genuine black people.
•  Same thing goes for video games and television. With the exception of Jerry Lewis movies and episodes of East Enders, of course.
•  They forget how to swim. Let’s face it, swimming is one of the least necessary skills for terrorists in the desert. Ah ha!!
•  They stop wearing women’s dresses and begin clothing themselves like dead people? Damn, this French stuff is hard to read!!
•  They spend time online researching AR15 accessories, especially trying to understand “the front part that goes up”, and sit around the cafes by hours debating the proper way to pronounce “Picatinny Rail System”

Funny, there’s nothing here about burning cars, being “disaffected”, how to tie that pesky kaffeya scarf, ways to mistreat women, what the 3 stones are all about, which way is southeast, this year’s fashion tips for suicide vests, or even how to get the cous-cous just right. I’d call it a pretty half-hearted effort from a government afraid to face the truth.

stop calling the poor boys terrorists, and never use insulting words when describing them.

Just when you think you have an understanding of what some words mean,
the rules change.
Apparently there are words and terms , “terrorist” being just one, that are thought to be loaded (no pun) and create problems.  Sooo, one branch of the BBC if not all of it, are to stop describing the folks who are happy to blow their own selves to kingdom come, along with any innocent bystanders, as “terrorists”.
Well heck, I suppose AQ is no longer a terror group then.
The scum who gave us 9/11 shouldn’t be referred to as terrorists either as I understand things.

Speaking of things that change. Plans are afoot here, if the woman who heads the Crown Prosecution Service has her way, to make men accused of rape in cases where the possible victim was 3 sheets to the wind at the time of said sexual encounter, must prove that they had the consent of said woman prior to the act.
In other words, you are guilty until proved innocent.

Which is unrelated to the following.

H/T National Review

BBC Arabic Head: Charlie Hebdo Attackers Should Not Be Called ‘Terrorists’

By Brendan Bordelon

The head of the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Arabic news channel said the Islamic terrorists who killed 12 people in an attack on the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo should not be labeled “terrorists,” calling the term too “loaded.”

Tarik Kalafa is the head of BBC Arabic, a 2008 spin-off of the internationally ubiqiutous British news service that serves nearly 11 million homes across the Middle East. On Sunday, Kalafa spoke with The Independent about his network’s coverage of the Kouachi brothers, two Islamic terrorists who wreaked havoc across Paris before dying in a shootout with police on January 9.

“We try to avoid describing anyone as a terrorist or an act as being terrorist,” he said. “What we try to do is to say that ‘two men killed 12 people in an attack on the office of a satirical magazine.’ That’s enough, we know what that means and what it is.”

“Terrorism is such a loaded word,” Kalafa continued. ”The U.N. has been struggling for more than a decade to define the word, and they can’t. It is very difficult to. We know what political violence is, we know what murder, bombings and shootings are and we describe them. That’s much more revealing, we believe, than using a word like terrorist which people will see as value-laden.”

It’s the latest iteration of a media organization struggling to define those behind the worldwide surge in Islamic terrorist activities.

On Tuesday, National Review Online obtained an internal email showing the head of output at Al Jazeera English warning journalists against using the terms “terrorists,” “extremists,” “militants” or “jihadists” when describing the actions taken by radical Islamist groups. “Avoid characterizing people,” the Al Jazeera executive admonished.

NATIONAL REVIEW

The American born Mayor of London has come under fire for using incorrect and bad language when referring to the bomb throwers and suicide types. The folks who are called jihadists.

What the mayor said. 

Home-grown fanatics who join ISIS are ‘losers’ who watch porn because they can’t find girlfriends, blasts Boris Johnson

· London Mayor said terrorists ‘badly adjusted in their relations with women’
· Mr Johnson said: ‘They typically will look at porn. They are literally losers
· Attack comes after psychological profiling by Britain’s spy agencies
· Around 600 jihadis have left Britain to join ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria
· Ministers have warned ISIS now poses ‘the greatest single threat’ to Britain

By Tom McTague, Deputy Political Editor for MailOnline

Home-grown fanatics who go to fight with ISIS are ‘wankers’ who watch porn because they can’t find girlfriends, Boris Johnson has claimed.

The London Mayor said British terrorists become radicalised are often ‘badly adjusted in their relations with women’ and turn to extremism to stop them feeling like losers.

He said: ‘If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally wankers.’

Mr Johnson’s remarks were blasted by some Muslim groups. But the London Mayor said his claim was ‘not remotely controversial’.
He said it was time for Muslim leaders to speak up much more forcefully against Islamist terror.

The prospective Tory MP said: ‘They are not explaining how it can be that this one religion seems to be leading people astray in so many cases.

‘They are not being persuasive in the right way with these people. I am not yet hearing it in the way we need to hear it.’

He said the ISIS fanatics tearing across the Middle East were ‘barbaric’ and ‘deserve to be treated as such’.

A Rose By Any Other Name

I’ve been mulling (mullah-ing?) this one over for a couple of days. I am so tired of posting and reposting the obvious, but in our insular, willfully blind “4 monkeys” world (see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, insult no islam) it seems like I have to put the truth out there every single day, in the faint hope that one more person will finally see the light. Not that our “leaders” in government or the media are ever, ever going to listen. They took the coward’s way out ages ago, and sold us down the river for no reason any of us can understand.

So here goes, once more:
Point 1. Islam is our enemy. All of it. There is no “moderate islam”. There is no “radical islam”. There is no “extremist islam”. Islam is a socio-political-theological philosophy driven by hatred and violence that has utter world domination as its one and only goal.
Point 2: Our government is a gnat’s eyelash away from being a treasonous tyranny. They do not represent us, they do not support the fundamental American ideals, and they trash and ignore the Constitution whenever they want to. We live one jackboot away from a police state and it gets worse every day.




Muslim Brotherhood is not formally labeled as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States. Neither is Boko Haram. Muslim Brotherhood has close ties to the White House. How is that even possible? In the news just the other day:

Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

So much for Obama’s Arab Spring. Millions of Egyptians rallied and protested and got Morsi and the Brotherhood thrown out. Yet Obama still supports them. rolleyes Well, you read all about it 2 days ago, it’s disgusting, and I don’t want to talk about it. Wrongest possible approach, as usual.

And what a surprise, a couple days later we get this ...
Open Jihad Declared in Egypt

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

Gosh, it’s like they’re suddenly revitalized. Pulled from the shadows and re-energized, with a new sense of legitimacy. Golly, I wonder how that happened?

And let’s not ignore the audacity, the raw chutzpah, of those statements coming from the State Department, how the actions of ISIS and these other islamic jihad terrorist groups have nothing to do with islam. That’s the latest one. Cubic stupid mated with unmitigated gall. Who buys this crap?

I really am at the point of just giving up, washing my hands of this idiocy and walking away. Bizzaro World. It’s the politics of insanity and inanity. It’s the Wookie Defense: it don’t make sense.

And then I found an essay that might just help figure it out. All of this makes perfect sense, from a pro-Caliphate one-world islamic perspective. At the cost of everything American. Which is treason, or tyranny, or both, or unbelievably close to either. But we can’t notice that monkey either.

The debate over Islamic terrorism has shifted so far from reality that it has now become an argument between the administration, which insists that there is nothing Islamic about ISIS, and critics who contend that a minority of Islamic extremists are the ones causing all the problems.

Our Countering Violent Extremism program emphasizes the centrality of Islamic legal authority as the best means of fighting Islamic terrorists. Our ideological warfare slams terrorists for not accepting the proper Islamic chain of command. Our solution to Islamic terrorism is a call for Sharia submission.

That’s not an American position. It’s an Islamic position and it puts us in the strange position of arguing Islamic legalism with Islamic terrorists. Our politicians, generals and cops insist that the Islamic terrorists we’re dealing with know nothing about Islam because that is what their Saudi liaisons told them to say.

It’s as if we were fighting Marxist terrorist groups by reproving them for not accepting the authority of the USSR or the Fourth International. It’s not only stupid of us to nitpick another ideology’s fine points, especially when our leaders don’t know what they’re talking about, but our path to victory involves uniting our enemies behind one central theocracy. That’s even worse than arming and training them, which we’re also doing (but only for the moderate genocidal terrorists, not the extremists).

Please take 5 minutes and read the essay The Imaginary Islamic Radical.

See? It was all in your mind. The world is perfectly fine and dandy, and our nation’s foreign policy is sound. It’s you who are crazy. Probably comes from being cisgendered without conscious choice, and being so racist and privileged that you call that “normal”, not even “heteronormative”.

Except that cartoon up at the top of this post mirrors exactly what the essay says, and exactly what Muslim Brotherhood is doing. And our Executive Branch as well.

Silence
Shoes and prayer mat
2008

To name what is not named,
to show what is not shown, to bind what is remote.
My work rests on this concept and operating mode
that proceeds by transgressing what remains forbidden and undisclosed.

Zoulikha Bouabdellah

The self-imposed starting point of Zoulikha Bouabdellah’s work is to see the world in a different way. In her Silence installation, the artist presents prayer mats whose circular shape cuts draw an ‘opening’ on the ground on which rest gilded court shoes. The Islamic religion forces people to remove their shoes before taking place on the carpet that delimits the space for prayer. However, Zoulikha Bouabdellah’s installation plays with limits in order to bring us to the edge of the sacred and the profane. Muslim women stand at the threshold of these two worlds – a threshold, which according to Mircea Eliade, also determines the distance between two modes of being.

Through a rather subversive work, the artist intends to lift the veil on a woman’s relation to Islam. Between respect of the religious tradition and fantasies of westernisation, she reveals her ability to invent for herself freedom spaces within a rigid framework. In this instance, Zoulikha Bouabdellah pays a tribute to the women who are not afraid to assert themselves in order to exist, beyond the silence surrounding the prayer or the question of the female condition in the Arab world.

I’m surprised she made cut-outs in the rugs. I would have put the shoes right on them, and used these sandals and other sexy western FMPs in various colors to really stress the conflict. This work is radical in her closed world, but in ours it is as if “Piss Christ” showed Jesus standing next to a porta-potty; the idea is there, but it’s rather timid. The hole in the rugs though, I like that. An opening, an opportunity. Perhaps an escape. Plus it still adheres to their rules, and brings in the whole vagina thing. Good for her.

‘Blasphemous’ artwork removed from Paris exhibition
Artwork showing women’s shoes on Muslim prayer mats is removed from exhibition after warnings of possible violence

An artwork depicting high-heeled shoes on Islamic prayer mats has been removed from an exhibition after a Muslim group warned of possible violence in the wake of the Paris attacks.

The French-Algerian artist, Zoulikha Bouabdellah, withdrew the work from an exhibition in a northern Paris suburb with a large Muslim population after an Islamic group told local authorities it could provoke “uncontrollable, irresponsible incidents”.

It is considered disrespectful to step on Muslim prayer maps with shoes.

Ms Bouabdellah has replaced the artwork, “Silence”, previously exhibited in Paris, New York, Berlin and Madrid, with a video installation showing belly-dancing to the French national anthem, with swirling red, white and blue shawls symbolising the national flag.

The decision sparked protests from other artists who complained that freedom of expression was being undermined only weeks after 12 people were killed when gunmen attacked the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. Another four people were killed at a kosher supermarket, and a policewoman was shot dead near a Jewish school.

Ms Bouabdellah, 37, said on Wednesday that the “lack of understanding” of her work was probably related to “heightened emotions” after the attacks. 

She makes excuses for them. Self-effacing. Her response should have been to fart in their general direction and to complain that their fathers smelled of elderberries. Or worse.

PS - and so much for the UK Telegraph, which ran this story but did NOT run a picture of the artwork. Cowards

Sniper pats Moore on the head

This is brilliant! I don’t know where to start.

Let’s start at the last paragraph. If I was a hostage I WOULD want the sniper to take the shot. But, if it was Michael Moore, I wouldn’t blame the sniper for this:

So tenderfoot, I leave you with this final thought: what if you found yourself in some sort of hostage situation where you were held at knife-point by some crazed person and they were dead set on making an example of you by bleeding you out on Hollywood Blvd in front of the world, and the only way out was with the precision aimed fire of a sniper? Would you want that coward to take the shot? Because knowing how you feel about snipers such as myself and your hatred of firearms, I’d probably drop the mag, roll the bolt and go get a Jack & Coke before helping you out.

Full letter here.
